  1. Sorry for the late reply, I've been off work today and been running around with my wife. Thank you MyGolfSpy and Odyssey/Callaway for the honor of testing the Odyssey 2 Ball Putter in the White Hot line. It's a face balanced beauty that feels so good when you roll one. I was able to get down to DSG today and hit a couple of quick putts with it and sunk both of them. I also picked up a new SuperStroke grip that I'll be using after giving the stock grip a go. I would post a picture of it, but I left it in the car that my sister-in-law just took off in. I'm really excited to get the chance to see if this blast from the past has still got it. Edit: I realized I forgot to mention mine will also be coming with the Stroke Lab shaft, I guess I was so excited to reply that I forgot that little detail. I also got the grip out of the car and took some photos.

  2. So I was thinking that I might get my clubs the first week of October but nope, they arrived today . Unfortunately it was way too windy to have a hit today and tomorrow looks wet. A couple of first impressions, these things are beautiful and they are way slimmer than my Cobras. I am meant to be playing a matchplay game tomorrow so it will be a true baptism of fire for them. Let the testing begin

  4. I have 4 rounds in the books with the new clubs and things are going excellent . The T100S irons are really consistent with the launch I want and really nice spin. The T200 4 iron is quickly becoming my favourite club to hit, it is just a rocket launcher . I can't say enough about the feel but I will leave that for my review. I have a session booked on Wednesday to get spin numbers for the Maxfli ball test so that will really tell me the truth about these (I will hit a few with my old clubs for a comparison too).

  5. Played an evening 9 with a buddy of mine who used to be a golf pro - he didn't focus on teaching but I still really value his opinion. After a round full of iffy swings (exemplary of my game the last few months), I asked him if he thought anything was off. He gave me a super simple setup tweak, and it worked like a charm. The last few holes I struck right in the sweet spot. There's just absolutely no doubt in my mind when I center it up that it'll do exactly what I'm thinking, and that's a pretty cool feeling.

  7. So I added some initial thoughts (pros and cons) in my review, but wanted to give an update that I didn't think was 'final review worthy.' I've had a couple more rounds with it and feel like I'm starting to get the hang of how to use it. The GPS (I switched to the dual mode or whatever that uses more satellites and possibly my blood type? to get a more precise location) is SO. GOOD. It is remarkably more accurate than Arccos, which I suppose is actually just an indictment of my phone, since that's the GPS it's using. I am really loving keeping my phone in my pushcart AND being able to use it after the round, since Arccos usually takes about 80% of my battery during the round. Now I'm streaming music the whole time and still have 70+% of battery left. Still having some issues getting the watch and the phone to sync up. Not as bad as the first time and it seems to be better when my phone is connected to wifi, but still not seamless and, so far, has never worked on the first try. I really miss the 'map' aspect of using the Arccos app. To be fair, I never used it on courses I play frequently, but didn't realize how much I relied on it for new courses until I was standing on the tee box with no clue what I needed to cover a hazard. Which leads me to: I was already accustomed to playing with a watch, so absolutely no difference there, other than I'm still trying to train myself where the at-a-glance yardages are AND I recently "discovered" the menu item that shows yardages to hazards. THAT is a game-changer for me. Really wish that had been in my demo walkthrough. Or maybe it was and I was just too giddy to get started and didn't pay attention. I'm getting more accustomed to holding the grip end with my trail hand so I don't accidentally mark a yardage too soon. Not a big deal, but it is something I'm thinking about during the round. Allegedly I'll get accustomed to marking putts more seamlessly (manual putting mode) but I'm still forgetting probably 40% of the time. I still don't like that I have to review the round afterwards. I can't figure out if I can/how to access SGA for just a single round/most recent round. I can see the overall SGA numbers, but Arccos gives it per-round and it was always interesting, especially on rounds where I thought it was my chipping that was bad but it turns out it's really my Approach that's to blame. Super low importance, but the size of these RFID tags compared to Arccos is such a noticeable improvement. They're so unobtrusive and I've never had a single time when I've had to double-check to make sure I was gripping the club and not inadvertently the tag, which I do frequently with the Arccos tags. More rounds coming up this weekend after this weather moves through. Hopefully that means the course conditions will be ideal, just in time for the leaves to change.

  8. Fortunately for all of my team the weather held off today till the 17th hole and I was able to give the T100S and T200 irons a good try. First off all of these irons felt fantastic, soft but solid. The launch was in the right window, flight was penetrating and spin was really good. I have to see how the distances but it looks like they will be either just as long as my Cobras or maybe even longer.... I am delighted with the clubs and can't wait to hit them again. As for my score, it was a solid 79 and I won my game 3 & 1. The team won 7/1 .

  9. Alright, here's some additional details on the session after getting rid of some of the outliers (shockingly, only needed to throw shots away for the Utility Iron and PW -- everything else was "good enough"). Distance was no surprise aside from expecting the Titleist to be 2-5 yds further than where things ended up. The surprising part was more in the flight stats, especially with the shorter irons (which are 2* stronger in the Titleist). I don't have stats on swing speed, smash factor, or spin, but I do have quite a few other good stats. Even though I have a T200 in hand, my test is the T100S, so I'm starting with that -- still totally appreciate the T200 long iron opportunity and am considering that part of the test, but it's the minor part of the test for me. General: Prior to the side-by-side, it seemed like I was hitting the T100S higher than my typical flight, with similar curve and accuracy. Once I started hitting at the range, the T100S felt slightly heavier at address. When holding them both in my hands at the same time, I didn't notice much difference, but when setting up and swinging, the Titleist had a slightly heavier feel (which I like). It felt more in the head, even though the best explanation could be that the shaft is 6g heavier (same shaft, S in Mizuno and X in Titleist, officially 114g vs. 120g). In terms of size and looks, the T100S looks comparable to the JPX919 Tour at address, and very slightly larger than it from other angles, but slightly smaller than the JPX 919 Forged. Noted previously, I have a combo set now (4-6 Forged, 7-PW Tour), so I'm splitting feedback and reactions based on that. Long irons: T100S vs. Mizuno JPX919 Forged. Lofts are identical, and shafts are similar. I expected very similar performance, and thought it would be a good comparison in where the two brands put their priorities -- if anything, I expected the Titleist to launch/apex lower because of the flex, but end up with similar distances. Well, the opposite happened, which I assume can only be attributed to the head (this was consistent across all clubs): the JPX was ~1 yard longer in total distance, but T100S was 3-5 yds longer in terms of carry (meaning it also stopped faster). The T100S went ~10-12 ft higher and had a ~5* steeper landing angle (held true with both average and maximum). Curve was very similar, with Mizuno having more right-left movement. The T100S was more accurate. The JPX had more consistent distances. I'm torn - so many good things happening with the T100S, but consistency could be a big factor on the course (need to be confident how far it's actually going to fly this time). Short irons: T100S vs. Mizuno JPX919 Tour. This was the most surprising -- the T100S are 2* stronger, so I went in expecting lower launch, lower apex, lower spin, lower landing angle, and more distance from the T100S. I left the test with only that last expectation holding true (well...I don't have spin numbers, but I think it adds up). The T100S launched higher (slightly), flew ~8-10ft higher, landed at a steeper angle (1-2*), and were 5-10 yds longer (both carry and total - honestly, I expected a few yards longer). This held true for all clubs except the PW, but that was the club I started with, so maybe I just wasn't warmed up. Dispersion was tight with both the JPX and T100S with the shorter irons. I have to give the edge to the T100S here because of both distance and landing angle (and likely spin?). And last,T200 3-iron vs. Srixon U85 2-iron: Starting out, I love the Srixon driving iron. I bombed it during my demo, ordered a U65 with a no-upcharge custom shaft (at the time I was matching my irons), and it showed up as a U85 (winning!). I later got an actual fitting for it and swapped in a graphite shaft. Off the turf, it does well, but it's mostly a tee shot club for me that is usually in the 230-240 range but can get up around 260, and it's pretty accurate (more confidence than D and 3W). I was hitting off mats for this session, so I didn't have low tees to compare tee shots, but off the turf, I was shocked that the best shot, by far, came from the T200 3i (25 yds longer than the longest Srixon with less roll), and that the T200 outperformed it overall on well-struck shots (to be fair, I had to throw away more mishits with the T200 than I did the Srixon). The T200 had 2.5mph higher ball speed, 1.5* higher launch (expected), 4* steeper landing angle, and was tighter in terms of accuracy (but again, that's ignoring the blatant mishits, of which the T200 had 2x the Srixon). It was also 10 yds longer on both carry and total distance . The Srixon was more consistent in terms of distance (both carry and overall). All signs there point to the T200, right? Well...it also had the two worst shots, by far -- if I can tighten up the consistency (which could be swing-related), this will be going in my bag for the foreseeable future. Summary: This actually holds true across all of the categories I noted above: the Titleist irons are mashers. They go a long way and stop quickly compared to my current irons. My current hesitation is consistency across the board -- even though accuracy is on par with (or better than) my JPX and Srixon, the inconsistent distances are a bit concerning. I do want the distance, so I'm planning to keep these in the bag for the remainder of the season, but I'm not ready to cut the JPX out of my life just yet.

  10. Thanks to MGS and Callaway for this opportunity! Excited to be able to test the #7 out! I consider putting my strongest part of my game (average ~30 putts per round with ~1 3 putt a round), so it will take a lot for the white hot to make it into my bag. I believe it's up to the challenge though. Feel free to start throwing out tests you'd like to see or questions you want answered during the testing process!

  12. I forgot to add this in from a few weeks back. I was lucky to play Laurel Valley Golf Club out of LIgionier, PA for an outing. I had a great shot on the 18th hole from the bunker. The layup was not much easier so the caddie talked me into just going for it. I tried to give a look at what I was facing, but it was about 195 to carry over the water and 205 to pin and I hit the T200 4 iron. Let me tell you the flight on this thing was just amazing. In the air, I'm thinking "did I really just pull that off and THAT'S my ball flight?!" The thing was towering and probably 130 feet in the air out of this bunker (looked like a 9 iron). It ended up flying through the wind with ease and landed in the back bunker probably a 220 carry. I was then faced with a downhill bunker shot that I was able to play really well and just landed on the fringe and it rolled to within a tap in for birdie. Definitely the best I've every played that hole. PS - Sorry for the terrible illustration.

  13. Fun experiment today - I played 9 holes with both sets. I hit 4 irons off of every par 4 in hopes to have a longer club into greens. I definitely have grown more accustomed to the feel of the Titleist and the Mizunos felt much lighter. Also, looking at the Mizuno right before or after the Titleist makes me appreciate how good these look from address. The Mizuno almost seemed clunky and the lines did not flow. The next largest takeaway by far was distance. I was a club or two less nearly all day. Off the tee, the T200 was also outperforming the Srixon ZX by a large margin. In the end, my score was the same - even par with both. More details below on FIR and GIR. Titleist Score: 36 (1 birdie and 1 bogey from a 3 putt from 50 feet) FIR - 5/5 (Four 4 irons and 1 5 iron) GIR - 8/9 (Varying distances still, left myself 50 feet twice) Mizuno Score: 36 (9 pars) FIR - 4/5 (Four 4 irons and 1 5 iron) GIR - 7/9 Overall Comments - The higher ball flight is great and it's nice to have less club also with the Titleist. However, I feel like I'm hitting some clubs too far. For instance I hit a gap wedge from 136. The lines on these are terrific. Definitely heavier than Mizunos. Shafts make a heck of a difference. I think part of the reason I am hitting a bit further is the change in shafts and the KBS being a bit less tip stiff. However, I might prefer the others as they feel easier to control. May look into changing the shafts out as I move forward. Need to experiment more.

  14. i just got home from today’s outing and the maiden voyage for the shotscope i can’t use our score (64!!) or any of the strokes gained metrics from today’s round but i’m really happy with how easy the watch was to use. every time i pulled a club, the watch displayed the right tag. so that right there tells me we’re off to a good start one guy in our group had a rangefinder, and another one had a garmin GPS watch. the shotscope yardages were consistently within a yard or two of the garmin yardages. and both were consistent with the numbers the rangefinder were giving us. first day out was a success!

  16. Alright guys and gals. As promised, I'm going to throw up a few photos to compare the T200's and my previous gamers, the Mizuno MP-20's. As a surprise guest, I also included a blast from the past - My Tommy Armour Silver Scot Blades circa 1995 from my backup, of the backup of my backup setup from Florida As you can see, the rear profile of the Tommy Armour and Mizuno are very clean as both are forged as a single piece. The Titleist is also clean looking but has a different look to it. This is due to the tungsten material incorporated into the head to give more mass to the head itself. Titleist did an awesome job as the head feels very, very solid at impact but not harsh. Tommy Armour(L), Mizuno(M), Titleist(R) - If you saw the T200's by themselves, you would think that it was a bigger head than it is. As you can see, the Tommy Armour looks to be the biggest out of the three with the T200's matching the MP20 in face size overall. Tommy Armour(L), Mizuno(M), Titleist(R) - This is where the T200's shows most of it's size. You can obviously see the longer head profile and thicker sole. It doesn't play that way though. I've been very impressed with the T200's ability to play out of every great and not so great lie (and believe me, I've been on almost every imaginable lie except for the cart path - not going to damage the clubs to test that though ). Titleist(L), Mizuno(M), Tommy Armour(R), - From this head on view you can see the differences with the Mizuno and Tommt Armours. There's definitely more mass behind the T200's. Ok folks, that's all I have for today. If you have any other questions, post them here and I'll answer them along with my other testers. I can definitely say Titleist hit it out of the ballpark this year with their lineup and the T200's are fantastic. I've been very impressed with the performance of the T200's. More thoughts after my next round with them. MDGolfHacker

  17. Another outing in the books and another good performance from these irons. Starting to feel more confident in the extra distance and beginning to play that distance and not overswing. Team ended up -10 and took second place on a fairly difficult course with slick greens. We had 4 opportunities from 12 feet that we missed for birdie, so could have taken home the Dub. We used about 85% of my shots, so I think I would have scored well with my own ball. Shots that I feel that I missed were still finding the green, but might be around 45 feet. And as I said above I had probably 6/7 iron shots that gave outstanding looks for birdie.

  19. Again this shows that people need to forget their preconceptions when it comes to shafts and clubs. Graphite shafts are not the light whippy sticks they used to be. Did you give your friend the broken record speech of "get fitted and try everything"?

  20. Another range session in the books, this time off mats. One shot I have struggled with mightily is the 95-105 approach shot. My game just wouldn't allow it. 85 and in, no problem, 125 and out, also good to go. Rarely found myself at 115, so moving on. Spent about 75 balls with just the T200 PW and a 50-60% swing motion and was drilling the 98yd flag on the range to within 10-15 feet, almost every time. The effortless ball flight, the ease of launching it, the crisp sound, the feel in hand, and the repeated accuracy are just sublime. Well done Titleist!

  21. I got out today to a course that's probably the most demanding on your approach and tee shot game (and takes driver out of your hand a lot), figuring that'd be a good test to see not only how the T100's hold up, but how they do with razor thin margins. Showed up to the course, and there was a stiff wind that stuck around all day long, only making it more demanding. Even though I scored poorly, I was really pleased with how the irons performed. My ball striking hasn't been it's best the last month, but when I put good swings on them the irons certainly delivered.

  22. I can't wait to hear how they perform for you on the course! I stopped off at DSG yesterday to kill some time after work and wanted to get a look at these since I haven't seen them in person. You all have been taking great photos, but seeing them on the shelf all I can say is, wow. They only had the 100's and 300's and I was disappointed not the see the 200's. The T300 felt good in hand, too. Best of luck tomorrow!

  24. Forgot to ask earlier: who's interested in a side-by-side comparison of the T100S to the 8th wonder of the world, the Cleveland VAS 792? If we get enough likes, I can make it happen. I wonder if that patent is still pending

  25. Don't have time for a full post right now and am still going through the data to throw away blatant mishits (I'm keeping track of how many per club because it's still relevant, but don't want it to skew the data), but a quick preview of what's to come: had a couple more good sessions this week, including a side-by-side with my JPX on the launch monitor. The results of that were...surprising. My direct club comparisons are: Short irons: JPX919 Tour vs. T100S (Titleist is 2 degrees stronger) Long irons: JPX919 Forged vs. T100S (same lofts) Driving Iron/Utility: Srixon U85 2-iron vs. T200 3-iron. "Should not" be a fair comparison - Srixon is 2 degrees stronger, 0.75" longer, and quite a bit thicker. Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to compare tee shots between these two beasts, just off the turf -- I expect ~90% of my shots with these clubs to be tee shots, so I still need to compare in that way. My mini concern with the T100S (which I think at least one other tester called out): you can mash these, but it only seems to come out once in a while, so I'm a little concerned with going long at semi-random times (in the college years, Donald Ross groomed me into playing short of the flag, and I've had that in my head for the last 18 years regardless of the course -- on our course, short was tough but you could pitch up and possibly get up and down; long was dead, and you'd often be playing your next from that same short position, grinding/hoping to get up/down for bogey). I will also say that I'm glad I chose the T200 3-iron rather than a 2-iron -- I considered getting the 2 so that I'm replacing my set 1-for-1, and maybe that would have worked out OK.... But the T200 has a smaller profile than I expected, and I'm not convinced I play/practice enough these days to hit a 2-iron with that profile (my last actual 2-iron was a Mizuno MP-30 -- when I retired that set, I jumped ship to hybrids and now utility irons).

  27. Update - 10-13-2021 I received an email from Gavin at Shot Scope saying I would receive some additional accessories (charger, putter tags and a new watchband). After receiving the additional accessories from Shot Scope like he said he would send out, it was discovered by all of us testers, that we received the wrong watch band. we all received bands for the G3. After letting the other fellas know of this, I decided to email Gavin and let him know of the mistake. I figured they went above and beyond reaching out to us, it would be prudent to let them know of their mistake as they'd probably like to know. I have a very strong feeling that they pride themselves on their product and would like to know when things go wrong. I received a new email the following day to say they have sent out the correct band for the V3. That's class and A1 Service! Thank you Gavin and Shot Scope!!

You can find it here: https://forum.mygolfspy.com/tests/19-test-in-progress-titleist-t-series-irons/?do=findReview&review=38 Because of this testing, I will have to change my avatar to reflect that I no longer will be playing the MP-20's as the T200's have earned a permanent spot in my bag! If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Thanks! MDGolfHacker

  31. another win for shotscope: the course i play most often used to have a long par 5 on number 8. at some point in the last year, it was shortened to a driveable par 4 because two houses were in the danger zone off the tee. shotscope still had it listed as a par 5, so i emailed them. two days later i had a response saying that not only did they re-map the course, but they left me detailed instructions for how to sync my app up with the changes they made.

  32. i played 9 holes yesterday using “manual putting mode” and man, what a difference! walk up to your ball on the green. hit the “+” button on the watch, then hit your putt. that just counted your first putt from your approach location. walk up to where your ball came to rest, 3 feet short of the hole. hit the “+” button again, and hit your next putt. that just counted your second putt. walk up to where you blew the 3 footer 2 feet past the cup. hit the “+” button…again. i think you all get the point. manual is super easy to operate.

  33. So I think the biggest thing for me is the ability to really feel and control the putter as a whole. Before this endeavor, I didn't really understand the importance of counter balancing vs just having a heavy putter head. I always thought that a decently weighted head would allow you to feel the putter moving through the ball. IMO and what I've learned is that just having a heavy head at one end is OK if you don't have too many varying conditions and don't need to make any changes to your pace or swing throughout the year. Here in Arizona, and I'm sure in may other areas, we have a lot of temperature and condition changes throughout the year.. hell even throughout the day in a single round. Counter balancing and the overall weight of the putter allows for a better connection of the hands to the putter head and allows the ability to make controlled changes to the stroke.. rather than just the feeling of trying to slow down or speed up the head with your hands without much connection in between. Without the counter balancing and weight, the feeling of the club as a whole can get a little lost and I'm realizing that now whenever I go back to my old gamer. Muscle memory is telling me that my Cleveland HB #4 is much too light and lacks the overall feeling of control that I have with the Edel and it didn't take any time at all to become comfortable with the weight of the Edel. That said, I'm still toying with the idea of adding some extra weight down the shaft of the Cleveland.. but then again, another thing that I've really gotten used to is the length of the Edel. Most floor putters max out at 35" and my Edel is 36" and quite a bit more upright so I'm not sure if making all of these changes to my Cleveland would be worth the hassle. The whole purpose of this test anyway isn't to see how much I can get a stock floor putter to emulate a custom fitted putter but rather how a fitter putter is that much better than a stock floor putter. Sure I could try to make all of these changes, additions, etc to my Cleveland but then it would be me just messing with the putter rather than going through the process of having a professional fitter and Edel build the club specifically for me.

  34. Had another round well 14 holes last night, played okay I was off on my targets but had a couple really nice iron shots, I feel like the T300 are really easy to hit, I had the 4 iron in the right side rough and smashed it through the tree right off the front of the green, also had a nice PW shot about 125 out and put the ball on the green, my problem with all my clubs was I had no accuracy at all .. so while I hit the right club I just couldnt get the ball where I wanted. Also off the Tee used a 5i had a nice draw on a lay up hole .. I also was messing around with a new grip setup so had to get used to it a bit. To sum it up even with a a grip change and being off the irons still preformed well shot 9 over the front.

  35. Spin has been solid. More so than my D7's, which is probably on purpose given the T200 is built for a different player and one who doesn't need more distance and height - on average - than a D7 player. So, with that in mind, I would say, very unscientifically, that the spin has been good and still producing solid ball flight with good stopping power. One other thing I forgot to mention in my earlier post - I got time with the trackman this coming Wednesday! What are some other irons you guys would like to see the T200 compared again? I'll take my best 5 shots from each to get a good idea of performance from iron to iron. Maybe the new P790's? What about the ZX5? Welcome any thoughts!

  36. The land angle is crazy good - I've had several instances where I'm 200 - 225 coming into a green with a 4, 5 or 6 iron and the ball is only 3 feet from my landing spot. Usually it's not bad, but more like 10 - 12 feet if not a bit more with my old clubs. This, I think is the greatest strength of the irons. Spin is probably a bit down, but more than adequate and paired with the angle of descent, a really nice feeling knowing it will hold the green regardless of distance.
    6 points
  37. I'm just curious what the other testers experience has been with the spin these irons produce? The T100's have been really nice for me - not only in a good spot quantity wide, but super super consistent. I'm honestly not sure if I've had a single jumper that's gotten away from me during all my testing so far.

  40. Got an email today about some app updates: im hoping the “big” updates are something related to capturing spin, but we shall see. there was also a link asking for beta testers on the app so I put my info in for that. I’ll update everyone if that comes to fruition.

  41. Update for all: We had a bit of a hiccup on the backend with the accounts to get the coaching feature for us so we are still awaiting news on this. We are hoping to have it cleared up shortly and have access to the feature as well. On a personal front I was away on a work assignment for a while then came back home and my parents are visiting Switzerland from Canada (also first time in Europe for them) and seeing as we normally only see them once a year I have to give them priority which has stalled most my updates. However they did bring my "backup bag" all the way from Canada so I have my lovely Cobra Fly Z+ driver back to replace my broken GBB Epic Sub Zero. Along with my other gorgeous fly z pro irons, black trusty rusty wedges and more... can you tell I'm happy to have them back? In any case things will be fired up again shortly and I have still been using the net to get some good swing feels as well as some videos which have been fun to analyse my own swing and when the coaching feature is activated it will be interesting if they see much of the same thing or something completely different.

  42. Got out Sunday to a new course. Another round of really good putting from <25'. 5 (1) putts from 17', 10', 3' 6' and 32'! Several edges were burned. Very comfortable with speed at this point. Had a few really long putts on some bad chips @ 75' and 47" both of those were 3 putts. Less setup related and more I really did not give the putt enough oomf. Line was good just was short, big left to right putts. No discernable difference in feel on these than my practice rounds.

  43. Great news! My net came in!!! I went ahead and unpacked it and took a quick look to confirm the size. It is the full-size SPG-7 net! Unfortunately, I have no idea when it was delivered since the delivery drivers around here never seem to knock or ring the bell so I'll have to dive into testing sometime tomorrow. For now...

  44. Initial convo with wife: Me: "Hey, we got selected for the golf club test I told you about. Come check it out!" (shows her the Honma Beres website) Wife (who admittedly isn't a golf club fanatic): "Looks interesting. Where are the pictures of the other clubs?" Me: "What other clubs?" Wife: "The other clubs they put in that set." Me: "It's not a set, it's just the driver." Wife: "It says it's $850." Me: "Yep." Wife: "That's crazy." Me: "Well that's the cheap one actually."

  45. That video made me realize just how close we are to November here in NE... not even the mass of leaves on the ground had made that sink in yet! haha I had another range session and the MLM worked well in the direct sun. It was about 70* out and the only shots missed were tops. There were 5 or so other shots with my driver that the shot tracer starting point was way off, so I'm not sure those shots were read properly. I was happy to see a few club head speeds around 108-109 on the MLM, which reads a, probably more accurate, few MPH slower than my swing speed radar.

  46. This might be something to confirm with someone who actually knows the product and isn't just messing around with it, but I just noticed that it was registering the club (there's a little icon on the watch screen) before I made a swing, which led me to believe it was marking before I got to the ball. In that same round, I had a couple of shots that seemed to be off from where they were, but not wildly off and that was a round where my cart partner would park halfway between our shots and then we'd walk to our balls. In my rounds since, I've been walking, so I haven't seen the same deviation. I'll try something tomorrow... I'll pick up a club and have it register when I'm ~30 yards away from my ball and then when I get to my ball, I'll pick up/swing a different club. If the watch does indeed mark based on proximity and not swing, I'll have a few extra shots randomly in the fairway that I'll pretty easily be able to identify and remove. (Why did I pull a PW from 170 out? Ohhhhh....)

  47. I got out to do a trial test with with the Sub70 and G410 tonight at the golf course. Interesting the clubs are within 1g of each other (299 vs 300) and have identical D1.5 swingweights. I left the Sub70 as it is set up from the factory for this first session..... 9* loft and weights were 3g in toe & heel and 12g in center. Keep in mind i trial and errored the G410 to the flat 9* setting and I changed the weights from the single 14g to a 6g in the toe and 3.5g in the center. So it is a 'tweaked' G410 (including an Accra shaft) against a stock Sub70 at this point. My swing isn't great tonight, stiff from chainsaw work and log handling today, and my ss was about 100mph, about 5mph low. I took the mevo to measure ballspeed, height and spin but I forgot the sheet of dots so the spin numbers can't be trusted. I took a dozen MTB-X balls and hit two with one driver and then switched drivers to hit two. I did this for two sets, switching the order of drivers. I hit odd #'s with one driver and even #'s with the other so I could tell which was which when i went to them in the fairway. Overall the two drivers performed about the same. Good hits had about the same ballspeed and odd & even #'s were about the same distance in the fairway or rough. My swing being off tonight there were some heavy draws / dare I say hooks coming off both drivers about 33% of the time. Neither was noticeably more or less forgiving on the mishits tonight. I did notice the ball flight favored a draw for this Sub70 set up. The Sub70 definitely flew higher on average. I am interested in tweaking the Sub70 set up to 8* which should lower the ball flight and maybe netralize the draw bias I am seeing. I will also adjust the weights, trying to mimic the G410 setup putting a 12g in the toe and 6g in center & the heel spot empty to start. This weight config should keep the sw at D1.5. I'll make these these tweaks one at a time and see if they give a bump in performance to the 849 Pro in the next session!!

  49. For those interested in steel shaft vs the Fujikura, I spent some time going between my steel-shafted Odyssey gamer and the Evnroll/Fujirkura MC yesterday. My final review will have my thoughts on this.
